Ron Paul Billboard GeorgiaSubmitted by Я Ξ √ Ω L U T ↑ ☼ N on Sat, 11/19/2011 - 19:22
Hello Daily Paulers,
Just wanted to share a short story and ask for some assistance. I was driving down highway 400 in Atlanta, GA. and noticed a couple empty billboards. Upon calling the number I was completely surprised and elated to find out the head of the outdoor advertising company was a fellow liberty loving Ron Paul supporter!
Because of who I was asking to put a billboard up about he is willing to cut a deal on the space. It's a 2 month minimum with the grand total cost of that being $2200 after all is said and done. Normally it would be $1400 more than that so getting a really great deal. He's also said that I could have the giant vinyl billboard if I don't have any more money for the sign after the 2 months is up. If I were able to get funds later to put it up again I could just re-use the sign to save on print fees or we could possibly ship it to another state that has use for it.
Ron Paul was short just a few votes on winning the Straw Poll here and many, many people I speak with are supporting Dr. Paul this go around. There are others, however, that either:
a.Don't understand Supporting our Troops means Supporting Ron Paul. It's evident by his fund raising from active duty military and veterans being TRIPLE the amount than the rest of the Republican candidates combined.
b.Are social conservative "Religious Right" types that don't understand Ron Paul's positions on civil liberties lines up exactly with what Jesus would do.
So I'm asking for 2 things.
1.Ideas for what to put on the sign. I would like to focus on those two core issues as that is the majority of folks down here that need to have the scales removed from their eyes.
2.ChipIn donations to pay for the space/sign. I will be able to get the art work done on that for free but need $2200 to get it up. The Thanksgiving Day holiday will soon be upon us as well as the Christmas holiday so was hoping to get the funds together and that sign up ASAP. Obviously I don't think we'd be able to scrounge enough together before Thanksgiving but was hoping by the end of this month we could do it. I just hope the spot doesn't get taken while we are getting the funds together! If that happens I can either look for another space or refund the money back to all donors. I'm not looking to make one red cent off this, I just want to do what I can to see Ron Paul in the White House.
Again, the chipin info can be found here:
And please post your ideas for the billboard in this thread. Thanks!
